The William H. Gross Collection: Outstanding U.S. Stamp Multiples

Sale Number 1200, Lot Number 62, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 56-77), The famous Duveen block of the 1861 5¢ Buff--for the past century this original-gum block has held fast as the only unused block of the 5¢ Buff or its shade varieties listed under Scott 67

DESCRIPTION

5¢ Buff (67), block of four, large part original gum, hinge remnants, bright shade that we would classify as closer to Brown Yellow (Scott 67a)

PROVENANCE

Henry J. Duveen (listed in Phillips's November 1922 book)

Arthur Hind, Phillips-Kennett sale, 11/20-24/1933, lot 262, to Ward

Wharton Sinkler, Eugene Klein sale, 5/17/1940, Sale 117, lot 91, to Ward

Philip H. Ward, Jr. (estate sold to Weills in 1963)

Benjamin D. Phillips (bought from Weills out of Ward estate, 1964; Phillips collection sold privately to Weills, 1968)

Ryohei Ishikawa, Christie's Robson Lowe sale, 9/28-29/1993, lot 401, to William H. Gross

CERTIFICATION

The Philatelic Foundation (1993)

CONDITION NOTES

Extremely Fine centering, but creased, slightly gum stained and there is a small repaired hole in the bottom left stamp--uniqueness forgives these flaws

SCOTT CATALOGUE VALUE (2019)

Despite the value of four singles with original gum at $110,000.00, the Scott Catalogue values this unique block at $11,500.00, explaining, "The unused block of 4 is unique but very faulty. Value is based on actual 1993 sale." It is true that Mr. Gross acquired this 26 years ago for $11,500 in the Ishikawa sale. One should expect the value to be updated to its new realization after the Gross sale is concluded

Sale Number 1199, Lot Number 1119, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 67-78)5c Buff (67), 5c Buff (67)5c Buff (67). Radiant color, gorgeous centering with wide and balanced margins all around, long and full perforations, neat strikes of grid cancel and circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 5-CENT BUFF IN THE FINEST CONDITION ATTAINABLE.

Due to narrow spacing on the 5c 1861 plate, it is very difficult to find centered copies with the perforations clear of the design on all sides. The stamp offered here, with its choice centering and fresh color, may be considered a true condition rarity.

Ex Curtis. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $6,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only four others share this grade.
